The matchup against the fourth-ranked Vols will serve as LSU's home-opener as the Tigers had to travel to face Arizona State last weekend. LSU's original season-opening game against North Texas was postponed due to Hurricane Katrina and has since been re-scheduled for Oct. 29 in Tiger Stadium.
The league office also announced that CBS has exercised its six-day window for picking their game on Sept. 24. CBS will select either the Arkansas at Alabama contest or the Florida at Kentucky game.
Jefferson-Pilot will televise the game not selected by CBS, while the Georgia-Mississippi State contest will be televised by ESPN2.
